    3. 4.5 I m enjoying this very entertaining and colourful series very much and it was lovely to get reacquainted with the engaging and genteel Inspector Shanti de Silva and his charming wife, Jane Not to mention Sergeant Prasanna and Constable Nadar De Silva met Jane in Colombo, where he began his career as a police officer, and Jane was a governess When they married, De Silva was offered and accepted the position of Inspector in the much pleasant and quieter small hill town of Nuala.Offstage in Nu [...]


    4. In this third instalment of The Inspector de Silva Mysteries, we return to the island of Ceylon in the 1930s The murder scene in this book is the sumptuous Gaiety Theatre, where an Asian tour by a talented group of actors, commences with a production of Hamlet The whole cast is suspect since no one else was seen to enter the theatre during rehearsal time and it is soon evident to Inspector de Silva that there are many secrets to uncover But he is also frustrated by the actions of his superior, A [...]


    5. Enjoyed reading this author for the first time Harriet could note a few observations for accuracy.I live in India My garden has a large variety of hibisci They DO NOT have a perfume She has described a perfume wafting from hibiscus pants in de SIlva s garden.Also, I always thought tulips grew on short plants not trees The pot and characterisation was well developed, and mainatined reader interest until the end.I look forward to reading from Harriet Steel


    6. I like this series I find them peaceful, for lack of a better word This one was the best of the three, so far I highlighted a half dozen sentences that I just loved In the previous books, I don t recall the type of writing that made me halt and highlight I also love the relationship between Shanti and Jane, mature mutual respect.Ceylon, 1936


    7. I was introduced to this author through TripFiction This is the third book of her Inspector de Silva Mysteries series This book continues to be an entertaining, cozy mystery set in 1930s Ceylon with humor sprinkled throughout and a scintillating cast of characters Loved it I hope there will be a 4th one in this series.


    8. Very EnjoyableLoved the trip to another world especially the little historical tid bits I think in the 21st century we have forgotten just how much the world has changed Great story.
